5 min readWith Valentine’s Day looming we thought we’d embrace our love for all things Australian real estate and share some of the most lust-worthy properties on the market right now. Home is where the heart is after all.
From picturesque manicured gardens, roaring open fireplaces, inviting hot tubs and waterside sunsets, these Aussie homes are sure to inspire your V-Day plans and get you in the mood for some serious romancing.
This lush beautifully lit courtyard has the perfect atmosphere for a romantic candlelit dinner with your sweetheart. Alternatively, head out for an evening of wining and dining, with Oxford and Crown streets only a short stroll away. Other enchanting features of this ultra-modern stunner include the secluded master suite with tranquil garden backdrop, heated slate flooring and a gas fireplace to top things off.
How good does sipping on some bubbly with your loved one while having a relaxing soak in an outdoor hot tub sound? But wait there’s more! Equipped with a 2000-bottle wine cellar, BBQ cabana, home theatre, heated lagoon style swimming pool and even a helipad, the opportunities for romancing that special someone at this opulent rainforest retreat are almost endless.
Imagine taking in a beautiful evening sunset overlooking Middle Harbour sharing a bottle of wine on this breathtaking waterside entertaining terrace. You could even channel The Notebook and head out in a row boat or kayak from the private jetty that grants you direct harbour access. If the weather turns bad à la The Notebook head inside to take advantage of the home theatre, sauna and spa.
This place has everything you could possibly need for a winning V-Day date night. Kick the night off at your very own private bar and design a custom ‘relationship cocktail’. Next grab some blankets and snuggle up in front of the fire pit sipping your cocktails, nibbling on delish homemade wood fired pizzas and roasted marshmallows for dessert. Finish up with a moonlight dip in the pool, a sauna session or watching rom-coms in the cinema room.
Chic beachfront abode
Imagine waking up to the waves crashing on the beach below and a bedroom view like this on Valentine’s Day morning. We envision a lazy breakfast in bed, followed by a cleansing steam in the steam room, a walk along Tamarama beach (which is only 40 steps away!) and maybe even a bubble bath for two later.
This house just oozes romance with so many pretty heritage details on display. Containing a 200-bottle wine cellar, an entertaining deck, integrated BBQ, a private backyard with heated six-seat spa and sauna, this home would be ideal for hosting a Valentine’s celebration for two or many.
Make your beloved’s heart sing with a mellifluous serenade from this beautifully appointed music room, complete with glittering chandeliers, a white grand piano, marble fireplace, leadlight windows and vases of freshly cut flowers. Sip tea from the elegant homes wide sweeping verandas with treetop views or take a dip in the backyard pool in the private lush gardens filled with rose bushes, manicured hedges and rolling lawns.
They say the best way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. So, if you’re significant other is a wine buff, host a wine and cheese tasting night from the amazing 3000+ bottle cellar tasting room. Other features conducive to romancing include the mesmerising river and city views, numerous veranda day beds, three fireplaces and a double shower.
Tuscan style valley villa
What could be more romantic than taking your Valentine on a Tuscan themed picnic? Drink in the glorious countryside views over a cheese and salami platter, and bottle of red while lounging on picnic rug in the picturesque gardens of this magical villa. Bellissimo!
Splendid lake house
Like something out of a Jane Austen novel, this would be the perfect place to woo your Mr Darcy or Elizabeth Bennet. Take a stroll around the magnificent grounds and feed the ducks on the lake. Later spoil your special someone back at the breathtaking historic Georgian style home with a high tea in the divine conservatory featuring French windows and river views.
